April 22

$160 - $185
Event web site images-02

Providing care to those who are suffering or struggling is what we do. Exercise, yoga and eating well are some of the ways we may try to care for ourselves, when we can. But this can often feel like added pressure – and is impossible while on the job.

There is another way that increasing research is showing can help us prevent burnout, manage vicarious trauma and build resiliency – even in the midst of overwhelming situations.

This one day workshop will provide you with the science, research and practices of mindfulness and self-compassion. You will learn how to include yourself in your circle of compassion and cultivate sustainable compassion for yourself and others.

This one day workshop will provide you with the science, research and practices behind Mindful Self-Compassion, an empirically-supported training program based on the pioneering research of Kristin Neff and the clinical perspective of Christopher Germer.

MSC teaches core principles and practices that enable you (and your clients) to respond to life’s difficult moments with kindness, care and understanding.

Rapidly expanding research demonstrates that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, reduced anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and satisfying personal relationships.

Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s a skill that provides emotional strength and resilience, allowing us to admit our shortcomings, motivate ourselves with kindness, forgive ourselves when needed, relate wholeheartedly to others, and be more authentically ourselves.
